Module Description

angular-mocks-node

AngularJS' ngMock module provided as a CommonJS module.

Paired with angular-node, you can use this module to take advantage of ngMock on the server side. Run your tests headlessly!

Rationale

The angular-mocks module provides a couple convenience functions (module(), inject()) which are not present if certain variables do not exist in the global context (window).

In NodeJS, there's very little in the global context, and there's no window.

This module sets the table for ngMock, and allows module() and inject() to be exposed on the angular.mock object.

Example


var ngMock = require('angular-mocks-node');

describe('my suite', function() {
  
  beforeEach(ngMock.module('myModule'));
  
  it('should do such-and-such', ngMock.inject(function(MyService) {
    // make assertions
  });
});

Notes

The angular.mock object is both exported by the angular-mocks-node module, as well as exposed on the angular object:

var angular = require('angular-node');
var ngMock = require('angular-mocks-node');
angular.mock === ngMock; // true

Supported Test Frameworks

  • Mocha
  • Jasmine
  • Anything else, really, but you won't get the convenience functions, because ngMock is written that way.
